Sir Jackie Stewart is a legend in many ways. Before he became well known for his driving, he was a world class shot in the clay pigeon world - indeed, he hosted a TV show called, if I remember correctly, Star Shot, or something like that. It was not a success. Then his racing career, with no less than three world formula one championships. In 1997 he created his own formula one team, which was later bought by Ford before becoming Red Bull Racing. Enough achievements for most men you would have thought, but no. In 1966, he crashed at Spa. In his own words - "I lay trapped in the car for twenty-five minutes, unable to be moved. Graham and Bob Bondurant got me out using the spanners from a spectator's toolkit. There were no doctors and there was nowhere to put me. They in fact put me in the back of a van. Eventually an ambulance took me to a first aid spot near the control tower and I was left on a stretcher, on the floor, surrounded by cigarette ends. I was put into an ambulance with a police escort and the police escort lost the ambulance, and the ambulance didn't know how to get to Liège. At the time they thought I had a spinal injury. As it turned out, I wasn't seriously injured, but they didn't know that. I realised that if this was the best we had there was something sadly wrong: things wrong with the race track, the cars, the medical side, the fire-fighting, and the emergency crews. There were also grass banks that were launch pads, things you went straight into, trees that were unprotected and so on." This prompted Stewart to become a tireless campaigner for safety in motorsport generally and formula one in particular. It is down to his tireless efforts to change things that fatalities on the track are so mercifully rare. For all enthusiasts of motor racing this disc will be a real treat.
